We’ll coordinate with your event planner, wedding planner, caterer, or musicians to make your charter a memorable experience. Our charter services range from providing a dockside venue for your event to a full-scale mock sea battle, complete with cannon fire (blanks, of course). We also have suggestions for world-class sea-shanty and folk musicians to give your event a historical flair.

Because our boats are constantly traveling, we recommend planning your event as far in advance as possible. To see our upcoming ports of call, visit our public sail schedule. If you would like to use the galley or on-board refrigeration, please let us know in advance. Facilities are limited.

Lady Washington accommodates up to 45 passengers under sail, eight for an overnight passage. Hawaiian Chieftain accommodates up to 39 passengers under sail, six for overnight passages. The vessel passenger capacity includes children and babes-in-arms. More guests can be accommodated when the ships are dockside.
